Activist Hada Reveals Torture During 19 Years of Unjust Imprisonment
Hada, an ethnic Mongolian dissident, was released
on Dec. 9 after 19 years of unjust imprisonment.
Hada revealed that torture in jail resulted in his body
being riddled with disease.
The police imposed several rules upon his release
and have restricted his civil rights.
Accordingly, Hada has filed charges against
the Communist regime and the Supreme Court.
Hada was the chairman and organizer of the Southern
Mongolia Democratic Alliance group.
In 1995, he was sentenced to 15 years for separatism
and espionage by Inner Mongolia Court.
In 2010, authorities put him in a black jail at the outskirts
of Hohhot for another four-year deprivation
of political rights that accompanied his original jail term.
On Dec. 9, Hada was finally released and reunited with
his wife and son on the eve of World Human Rights Day.
Beijing activist Hu Jia: “He is the most well-known
He received the longest imprisonment besides
the life imprisonment Ilham received.
He was detained for so long.
After the jail term, he was kept at another black jail
and secluded from the world.
It is outrageous."
In an interview with Radio Free Asia, the 59-year old Hada
said he was in restraints twice for a total of 99 days.
During which time, the food was atrocious
and his weight declined rapidly.
They have continually used poison on him,
leaving his organs weak.
Hada said he was put to work every day.
There were many days without rest for the full 24 hours.
His waist and back were thus seriously hurt.
In winter, he had to work outside for 24 hours straight
with no source of heat.
He quickly developed lower limb atherosclerosis.
Hada said that he is now riddled with disease.
He said, “I have been diagnosed with more than 10
different conditions in a physical exam in November,
all of them the result of the torture, physical punishments
and maltreatment I suffered in jail."
Hada said that in four years of imprisonment in the black jail,
he was monitored by more than 100 people.
Council of Mongolia-Uyghur-Tibet-China Chairman Xi
Haiming: “The 15 year imprisonment was unreasonable
and illegal according to international
human rights standards.
But after the jail term, he was detained
for another four years.
His health is poor now.
The first priority is to improve his health.
It is impossible to completely recover.
The CCP intended to hurt him."
Hada is an activist committing to ethnic minority rights
in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.
For more than 10 years, Hada’s wife Xinna and son Uiles
have constantly appealed to the international community.
This March, Xinna published an open letter through RFA
calling for Xi Jinping to release Hada.
She indicated that during Hada’s detention,
the families have also been subject to various tortures.
In July, the family issued a complaint on behalf of Hada
to Xi Jinping, the United Nations Commission
on Human Rights, and the Human Rights Commission
of the US Congress Foreign Affairs.
In November, Xinna and Uiles sought help from
US President Barack Obama to voice concern to Xi Jinping
regarding Hada and his family during the APEC.
Xi Haiming: “He is the Mongolian Mandela.
He has fought for Mongol’s rights, not his own.
He was imprisoned for the Mongols.
We hope the international community or the media
will pay attention to his situation."
Hada’s son Uiles told RFA in November that Mongolian
authorities have continued to escalate the persecution
of their family.
Their communication and meeting with Hada
were completely terminated.
Their phone and Internet cut off.
Inner Mongolia Public Security Bureau also illegally froze
Their survival was the most severely threatened
in nearly 20 years.
Hada’s wife and son have also been detained several times
in the past few years.
Hada believes the purpose was to force him
to give up on his ideas.
Hu Jia: “It is the CCP itself that intensifies the ethnic issues.
It is precisely what the CCP has done, its suppression,
that aggravated the ethnic separation.
Even though it is not as serious as Xinjiang and Tibet,
but they still employ the coercion to suppress
a Mongol dissident for 20 years.
This is truly beyond imagination."
According to Hada, the state security police
issued two orders.
First, he continues to be subject to police monitoring.
Second, he is required to routinely report
Hada said that he has never accepted the charge
for the past 19 years.
Now as a citizen, he will not accept the demands
from the police.
He has also issued a complaint and notice to accuse
the Communist regime and the Supreme Court.
